Course Advancement


Course advancement provides NPSD students an opportunity to accelerate through certain course sequences.  Eligible courses are Geometry, Introduction to Physical Science, and some World Language courses. By successfully completing the course advancement curriculum, students will be able to access additional options in the high school curriculum. This challenging and rigorous coursework is offered through the Montgomery Virtual Program (MVP), Montgomery County Intermediate Unit’s online learning platform.  

To learn more about course advancement, a Course Advancement Information Meeting for students and their families will be held virtually on Tuesday, January 30, 2024 from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  Registration for this meeting has now closed.  A recording of this meeting will be posted for those who missed the registration deadline.
